This Geeklist is intended to chronicle some of the games played at a weekly meeting of the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society.





The Columbus Area Boardgaming Society (CABS) is a club dedicated to boardgaming in central Ohio. The club started as a group of 15 friends back in 1997. Since then, CABS has grown to over 400 members with meetings almost every weekend. Our members play everything from Eurogames to Wargames to light family games. Our club also maintains a library of over a thousand games, which members can "check-out" just like any public library.


Come visit us at a weekly meeting or during our own gaming convention in the fall, Buckeye Game Fest. Your first meeting is FREE!

Happy Gaming!

Pirate-opoly. A truly awful game that is, for some reason, kind of fun to play (though that may have more to do with who you are playing with than the game itself). It's kind of like watching a really bad movie that's funny because it's so bad. This game has too many glaring flaws to mention, but does have a couple of redeeming features- namely 1. the movement mechanic is good idea but executed poorly, 2. lots of cool bits.

I can't say I enjoyed it, but I can add another game to my "learning experience, never play again" list. Next time I want to get all piratey, I will play Merchants & Marauders.

Thanks JH for bringing it to the table, thanks Lia and Donna for playing.

There are not many times that I play the same game 3 times in one night, but I have to say that I find SotM an intriguing game/phenomenon. The depth of story and theme of this game is unbelievable. I am not "into" the game, but apparently there are multiple story arcs as described to me by another player who is "into" it. I would not be surprised if an actual comic series emerges from the game- how would that be for a reversal of the typical licensing arrangement?
The best part of this game is the intricate, and often unexpected, interplay of the various hero/villain/environment cards over the course of the turn. The designers must have spent hundreds of hours play-testing this to work out the bugs and get the text just right.
Game #1- we got destroyed in about 5-6 turns by Iron Legacy. We never even had a chance.
Game #2- Visionary (me) changes Apostate's damage to "cold" and he proceeds to heal Absolute Zero (Sub Zero?) back to full health every turn. From there it was pretty much a walk.
Game #3- The righteous crusader hero (whose name escapes me) neutralizes the assassin's power for a few turns allowing us to knock out virtually all the Organization's sub-Bosses. From there it was pretty much a walk. I don't have that much experience with SotM, but I am pretty sure the Scholar is broken.
Oddly, these 3 games were the most unbalanced plays of the 9-10 games I have played. Still very fun though.

If you heard someone yelling "fire," that was me. Obviously, the building wasn't burning down.

Saw several games of this. You almost get the feeling there's a Z-Man spy at the club that teaches this game to everyone.
